Green MPs To Protest Inner City 'Bypass'
Green MPs Sue Kedgley and Nandor Tanczos will this evening
join a protest against the proposed inner city 'bypass'
which, if ever built, would push a multi-lane motorway
extension through the heart of Te Aro.
The protest, which
is organised by Campaign for a Better City, will be outside
the launch of the National Roading Programme at the Park
Royal. Sue Kedgley was invited to the launch but has decided
to protest instead.
The Green MPs will be present between
5.15 and 5.30.
